His athletic ability has caught up with him in the NBA, and he has struggled to get minutes. With the Lakers this past season, Ennis averaged 11.1 minutes per game, and was able to net 4.3 points per game while shooting 43% from the field. Ennis was never an elite three point shooter, but shot 38% from downtown last year. Ennis averaged only 0.8 rebounds per game, and 1.6 assists per game. Ennis will never be the Kyrie Irving playmaker type of point guard, but can
